13 Days of Tricks and Treats – Day 3

Welcome back to day 3. Today’s boxes are super fun and extremely versatile! They are a cut file from Lori Whitlock called popcorn favor box. I bought the dog and lion versions because the animals were too cute to pass up! They do have just the popcorn box available as well though.

To create these fun boxes, I used the file to cut out the box from black cardstock. Then I altered the file with the Cricut Design studio to create the panels for the sides and cut them from some Halloween patterned paper in my stash. I inked the edged of the patterned paper with black soot distress ink to tone down the brightness of the green a bit. Then I used scrappy tape and tape runner to put them all together.

Finally, I stamped, colored and colored this cute image from Stampendous called pumpkin kiddo. It’s an older stamp I found when digging deep in my forgotten about stamps and thought it would fit great on these boxes. She is popped up with foam squares on each box.

Then my daughter and I took our Dollar Tree haul and filled them up with fun goodies like glow-in-the-dark bats, a paddle ball, rubber stamps, slime and candy. I think the kids will have a blast and be excited to receive these cuties!

I want to try making these with the dog that comes with the cut file but add a Santa hat for Christmas. Won’t they be so cute?!? I think so. Maybe roll up a pair of socks to fill them. What would you put in these?

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Remember to come back tomorrow to see what tricks or treats I have in store to share. Have a fabulous day!
